6:16 pm
steal here and there and use it for their vehicles that burn on vegetable oil. >> reporter: theft is an industry problem. david levinson of got grease says the thieves are cutting in a his bottom line. >> tough to expand your business and get new restaurants when you're going to the restaurant and there's no cooking oil to collect. >> reporter: so the department of food and agriculture is cracking down with a program to catch the slippery thieves. the industry realizes it's not easy being green. >> you try to perform a good service, try to collect before it gets full and when you arrive there, your grease container has been sabotaged. there is a hole in it. >> reporter: in san francisco, patrick sedillo, cbs 5. new fallout at the susan g. komen foundation tonight. over the funding controversy with planned parenthood. karen handel a senior vice president for public policy at the breast cancer charity has resigned. she said, although she supported the decision to revoke funding for planned parenthood, other officials

6:18 pm
situation. >> reporter: but she says, voters need to think of the girls who are more vulnerable than most. >> unfortunately, we don't live in an ideal world. not every teenager has an ideal family. not every teenager can safely talk about this with a parent or even have a parent in their lives to talk with. >> reporter: opponents say a young girl's health is at risk if being forced to notify her parents causes her to put off getting prenatal care. backers. notification initiative says a girl's health is their concern, too. >> i think if you -- >> reporter: except they feel she is more likely to get healthcare if parental notification is the law. >> i'm number of late abortions are done on teenaged girls because they hide it and the jig is up. you can see it and so they go to the parents and they get what treatment they get. so i don't think that's a serious problem. >> reporter: as for why voters will see this issue on the ballot for the fourth time since 2005? >> it's hard to know exactly
6:19 pm
what the motives are, why this has been repeated four times, why californians keep rejecting this measure. and they keep pushing it. but it may be just to generally draw attention to abortion in the way that politicizes it and garners people out to vote. >> for me it's the atomic bomb dropped on society. this is a big issue you can't stop. >> the deadline for the required 808,000 ballot signatures is june 11. back in 2008 what was prop 4 or popularly called sarah's law was defeated by a vote of 52 to 48%. if you have a story idea log on to cbssf.com click "connect" and then scroll down to "closer look," send us an email. things are beginning to settle down here in the cbs 5 weather center as even our link, showers are beginning to dissipate. good evening, everyone. let's look at our live hi-def doppler radar. the storm that moved through very quickly this morning dumping over an inch of rain

help peddle the program in other cities. mike sugerman, cbs 5. >> doesn't give him anything with wheels. dangerous! three states, dozens of delegates and bragging rights. the next test of the presidential race under way right now. and the first results just coming in. a federal appeals court strikes down prop 8 but the fight isn't over. what it will take to finally resolve the issue and why the supreme court may not take the case. this under water welder is a convict training inside a california prison. i have something to look forward to. >> how inmates are trading a life of crime for a six-figure salary. the bonus for taxpayers. coming up next.

presidential r three states, two caucuses, one primary. tonight we await results from the presidential race in colorado, minnesota and missouri. ken bastida is waiting for those first results to come in. ken. >> reporter: kind of interesting, dana. they don't mean anything. this is all for show. yeah, they're voting but they're nonbinding votes this time around. the very early numbers are giving rick santorum some hope that he might be on the verge of having a big night in
6:30 pm
minnesota. let's take a look. the numbers are starting to trickle in with 3% of the precincts reporting so far. rick santorum holds a big lead at 40 delegates will also decide their preferences later in the process. romney won minnesota in 2008 but it's still as you can see up for grabs. now, santorum also leads in very early returns in missouri but missouri is holing a nonbinding primary meaning no delegates run for grabs. just the bragging rights tonight. romney has basically ignored missouri altogether. he is not even going. missouri picks its delegates at caucuses next month. so far no results from colorado, still too early. 33 delegates run for grabs in colorado's caucus but like we saw in iowa, once again, the caucus are nonbinding. their 36 delegates will be chosen at district conventions and the statewide convention coming up in april. today's gop candidates also
6:31 pm
tried to convince voters they are the best conservative for the job. who is more conservative? mitt, rick? newt? mitt romney wants to extend his winning streak. he won colorado in 2008 but the tea party has made it a more conservative race. and today newt gingrich played up his conservative positions, as well. he wasn't on the ballot in missouri as i mentioned but he did compete in colorado and minnesota. he campaigned in ohio as well today hoping to score big in the swing state next month. and rick santorum is looking for his first win since iowa. he essentially skipped florida and nevada to double down on colorado and minnesota. we need a map of the states, move them around like puzzle pieces. thinks confipositions on social -- his conservative positions on social issues are serving him well. ron paul poured money into minnesota hoping for victory there. paul is the only candidate who has yet to win a state
6:32 pm
contest. back to you guys. >> thank you, ken. we're going to check bay area headlines now. a domestic violence advocacy group is trying to raise money for a billboard targeting san francisco's sheriff, ross mirkarimi, over accusations he abused his wife. that sign would be placed near the sheriff's office at the hall of justice and would read, "domestic violence is never a private matter." the days of plastic bags are numbered. the san francisco board of supervisors just approved a ban on plastic bags in all retail and restaurant establishments in the city. shoppers will also need to pay 10 cents per paper bag. a shake-up at yahoo. four board members including the chairman announced today that they're leaving the company. it comes as yahoo continues to struggle to reinvent itself. a major step forward for gay rights supporters today as a federal appeals panel rejected california's ban on
6:33 pm
same-sex marriage. >> yeah! >> prop 8 defined marriage as being between one man and one woman and outlawed same marriage statewide. today's 2-1 ruling declared it unconstitutional singles out gays and lesbians for discrimination. don't expect to hear wedding bells soon. the decision is expected to be appealed to the u.s. supreme court. and the case is effectively on hold until then. but joining me now, julie nice constitutional law professor. the justices took the proponents of prop 8 to it's income their ruling? >> they did. it's a cautious ruling in one sense in that the courts really limited the ruling to california, stripping the right of marriage. but at the same time, the court really rejected the reasoning of the proponents who are trying to defend the
6:34 pm
ban that it will encourage responsible procreation on the part of heterosexuals if marriage is denied to same-sex couples and the ninth circuit said that's not even plausible. >> reporter: it's applicable only to california within the ninth circuit. some analysts are saying for that very reason, the u.s. supreme court may not take it because it is such a narrow ruling. >> i think that's right. i do think that's right. the panel of two judges who decided this it was a 2-1 decision were being cautious to be honest and really limiting the ruling just to the specific circumstances and facts of california having allowed same-sex marriage and then taken it away. and what the court said is you have to have a really good reason if you are going to give a right and then take it away only from a particular group of people and they didn't have one. >> reporter: do you think it will get to the u.s. supreme court? >> i definitely think the proponents of prop 8 intend to appeal it to the united states supreme court. they may not take it.
6:35 pm
>> thank you. it's no secret, california prisons are a mess. they are overcrowded, expensive and the recidivism rate is staggeringly high. but it doesn't have to be that way. christin ayers shows us how some convicts are diving for a second chance. and it's saving taxpayers a fortune. [ chanting ] >> reporter: it may sound like military boot camp but take a closer look at the razor wire and guard tower. >> one, two, three! >> reporter: these guys are not in the military. they're inmates at the california institution for men at chino. but instead of sitting in their cells, these convicts are diving into a more promising future. not just for them but for a cash-strapped california. >> when they leave here, they are not the same people they were when they came through
6:36 pm
the gates the first day. >> has to be watertight. >> reporter: the facility is the marine technology training center a commercial dive school on prison grounds. >> i have learned a lot about commercial diving, physics, physiology, dive medicine, welding, torching, cutting, and a lot about myself too. >> reporter: the training will take them from the cell block to the open sea where they could make up to six figures as commercial divers, under water welders and heavy construction riggers. >> it's opened up an arena of opportunity that i didn't know was available to me. >> i came to the program hoping to change my life and i did. >> reporter: the program is under the leadership of deep sea diver fred johnson. >> the biggest challenge is to get them to believe in themselves. >> reporter: he says because these men lived in prison they are well prepared and in high demand to live on hotel platforms doing dangerous work hundreds of miles offshore. >> they don't have the problem
6:37 pm
of living in a confined space. >> reporter: they are required to spend four times more hours training than civilian divers and it's grueling. by month 4 they must be able to swim five miles without stopping. and weld not only above ground but under water, as well. there is an 80% dropout rate. but those who pass are capable of patching pipelines hundreds of feet under water but perhaps the bigger skill, staying out of prison. >> this is life training. these guys are learning how to survive, how to take orders, show up to work. >> reporter: less than 6% of inmates at dive school land back behind bars compared to 65% of the state's general population. >> once they get out, they don't want to come back to prison. they have a job when they leave. >> reporter: what pays for the program? not the taxpayer. all the funding comes from inmate-produced goods and services under the california
6:38 pm
prison industry authority. >> don't want to come back. now that i have this, i have something to look forward to for the rest of my life. >> reporter: in chino, christin ayers, cbs 5. california spends nearly $50,000 a year to keep an inmate behind bars. fred johnson says in 2006, the dive program has saved the state $2.5 million. so do you think that this is a good idea? on our website: first go to prison and fail at parole." and from choice: "i am happy that they are doin something fo us that not f us would want to ris lives doing." be part of t rsation at cbs s-f m.

6:40 pm
6:41 pm
to fight may just be the key to well, it seems to go against some people's logic. but some say teaching kids how to fight may just be the key to keeping them off the streets. john ramos shows us the surprising life lessons being taught at a school of hard punches. >> two jabs, two jabs. >> reporter: at this small gym in east oakland, kids are not just learning how to fight. they're learning how to live. >> you know, maybe they don't realize that we're here because our kids are staying out of trouble and that's not news. >> reporter: the east oakland boxing association has been here for 25 years. what began as a neighborhood gym has become an after-school program complete with homework tutors. they have a garden where kids from 5 to 20 years old learn
6:42 pm
to grow organic vegetables and once a week volunteers hand out food to the community. >> perhaps the most important thing that the kids who come here get from this place is someone who believes in them and helps them to believe in themselves. >> place changed me. >> reporter: jose villareal was a student and now teaches here. he says he is going to college because of the things this place taught him. but maybe not for long. >> we are in a financial crisis. >> reporter: sarah chavez just took over the program and says the lack of grant funding could close the operation within months. she says new grants are being written but... >> we need some help right now or we will not be able to provide these services to these young people. >> reporter: they are holding an open house on wednesday to try to convince someone, anyone to come to their aid. until then, the kids who consider this place home want people to know how important it is to them.
